Managing Ear Wax
The accumulation of ear wax is a common problem. It is more evident in hearing aid users as the normal clearing mechanism of the ear is interrupted by the receiver dome in the ear canal. Users of Hearing Aids should monitor any accumulation of ear wax on the receiver dome daily. When there is a consistent collection of wax it is time to have your ear examined by your Audiologist and have it removed professionally. This will help preserve the life of your hearing aid loudspeaker to ensure you are hearing optimally at all times.
ACE Audiology Melbourne has excellent facilities to assist the removal of ear wax. This includes a gentle warm water irrigator that is electronically controlled for your comfort. More troublesome wax can be addressed with our suctioning technology or manual removal tools.
